Despite all the negative reviews about the brand, I decided to give them a chance since they're budget friendly. They are much better than I expected! The music isn't as crisp as what you'd hear with a high-end set, but I haven't experienced distortion or anything like that. The battery lasts for ages too. They fit great and don't slip out when I start sweating. They block out some ambient noise, but not so much that running outside with earbuds puts me in danger. Some folks turn their nose up at the brand, but I'm happy with my earbuds.
I agree with you about their earbuds. They're about $100 less than AirPods and they get the job done. I'm not a fan of the original Plattan headphones though. They give me a headache after a while and they get too hot. The brands updated model is supposedly better, but I'm not rushing out to buy it.
